Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Does the tenancy have a termination clause please?
it's a 12 months contract with break out clause after 6 months. I started the agreement 18 December 2013
Ok - sadly you are liable for the whole period.
If you move out then you would be liable for rent during the empty period
But if you or the Landlord got someone else in then you would only be responsible for the time when the flat was empty.
But until there is another tenant the Landlord can keep your deposit
I am sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
ok, clear ...my question was about negotiations to get somebody else in, so if I can cover with another tenant this would be acceptable and the Agency or Landlord have no reasons to hold my deposit afterwards, correct?
Yes that is correct - you can dot his
Does that help?
it does thanks
If this answers your question could I invite you leave feedback on my service which I hope has been excellent today, if you need more information or help then please click reply.
